Re: Note from Frank Sergent

Thanks for taking the time to break it down like this, Frank. I'd also like to add that I think it's a great thing you're doing here. Making your intellectual property public domain is an excellent way to ensure the future of your couplers.

If I can convert those 3D files to a format I can use with my ancient software, I have a few ideas I'd like to try out...

I was thinking of upscaling them to 1:32 and using my 3D printer to make a few. I've been thinking of doing some No. 1 gauge trains.

This makes things interesting...

My name is Peter York and I live in Dallas, TX. 

I collect brass model trains in all gauges (Gauge 1, O, HO and N). My preference is for articulated steam (all roads), UP diesels and turbines and unique and unusual rolling stock. I currently own approximately 400 models.

My reason for joining this group is I have always wanted my models to be as accurate to scale and prototype as possible, and Sergent couplers are a perfect addition to any of my HO models.

I would be happy to provide references if you need them, as I am personal friends with most importers.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Sergent engineering.

I would like to join this group after reading on the website about plans. I myself am an 1/8 th scale modeler and builder and was using your photos to develop my own couplers.

Thank you scott

Re: Joining message.

Did you see the files on the Sergent website? Very cool stuff. 

These couplers look great in NO scale and will certainly be stellar in 1:8.

Hi John,

Sorry to be late in responding. We have just begun a major remodel of our house and things have been a little hectic around here.

Can you give me a little more information on the following models, i.e., price, condition, Key custom series #, etc. Photos would be nice. Even just the box label; then I could do further research on them.

Key
AC-5 SP Early
AC-6 SP Modern Cab
AC-9 SP #3800 Coal
2-6-6-2 SP
FA1/FB1 UP Alco

Oriental
E-6A UP
E-6B UP

Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Peter

Actually,

Its going to everyone on the Sergent Engineering groups.io list.  I’m not the moderator, but conducting brass locomotive /equipment sales via the list seems abit off topic (probably unintentionally)

Your individual email addresses appear within this email chain, so I have BCC’d you (this may or may not work).

That all said, I would be interested in having a look at John’s brass list since its been brought up.

Hello to all of you,

This is my third attempt to contact you. As you can see in the mail address I am living in The Netherlands. The reason I apply is that some years ago I bought EN87A couplers for my On2 Gilpin railroad. I have sold all equipment but removed the couplers. So I had enough for 25 cars. I hoped they would be correct for my On3 South Park railroad around 1885, but they are too small.

Sheldon Schwedler of Coronado Scale models advised the S couplers as being almost correct for the 3/4 size coupler. (I do not like Kadee’s and the new San Juan couplers are too big for my chosen period.) I ordered S couplers for 4 cars; the Smoky Mountain boxes arrived this week. I hope I can start assembly and testing in a few weeks.
I hope to learn from the experience of others about the couplers, especially on eventual troubleshooting. No one over here (also those who model US railroads) uses them or even know of their existence.

Kind regards,

Daniel van Aggelen

Welcome to the group.  I just visited a great DSP&P layout in On3.  The owner uses Sergent S scale couplers and they looked pretty good to my eye.
